Walk around central Cairns, particularly along the Esplanade, and you’ll see myriad businesses claiming to be tourist information centres. These are all businesses trying to sell you tours, dive courses, reef trips and other activities; and there is only one official tourist information centre (at 51 The Esplanade, Cairns) where the staff are there to give you information rather than sell you things.
